Norris looking to 'turn the tide' against Renault at Singapore
Lando Norris says McLaren are aiming to “turn the tide” back against Renault at this weekend’s race in Singapore after the French outfit enjoyed their best result of the season at the Italian Grand Prix, closing the gap on McLaren in the championship.
While Norris managed to claim one point at Monza by finishing 10th, Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hulkenberg finished fourth and fifth respectively which earned enough team points to bridge the gap to 18 between McLaren in fourth and Renault in fifth.
It proved to be a track which suited the strengths of the Renault car, and Norris is hoping that McLaren can bounce back this weekend as F1 travels to Singapore.
"In Italy, Renault had a great weekend and they did everything they had to do,” the Brit told Motorsport-Total.com.
“That is something we have been able to do many weekends, but now it was their turn. It was because there are many straights and slow turns.
